Ip address on wireshark pc


When I mirror a port, does it matter what ip address I configure on the wireshark pc?

What do you mean by "mirror a port"? Do you mean that you're configuring a switch port as a mirror port and plugging your Wireshark PC into that port to try to capture traffic going through the switch?
